VBlocker

SMS Tab

Revised 26 September 2016

 

SMS tab shows the list of sms messages fetch from your inbox/native sms messaging app. SMS Tab shows count in header which means the total of unread text message you have to take action.

Please Note If your phone android version is 4.4 or higher then you need to set VBlocker as Default SMS Messaging app to get handle of SMS Messages. It is as per Android Framework 4.4 and higher version updates and only one application can handle the SMS Messages constraint. As per rule we have implemented the app to work text blocking for 4.4 and later phone users.

Please read out the article on this by Google.

So if your phone is comes in this case 4.4 and later version, it means you need to set app to Default SMS App for SMS blocking. You can get help and read about it in detail in Setting VBlocker as Default SMS App.

Sorry to say but need to let you know the app is not yet supported to handle MMS Messages. So if you set this app as default you will not send and receive MMS messages.
